Severe Thunderstorm Potential Today

A regional radar check this morning shows several clusters of strong storms well west of us with some disorganization to them. Out of this, a large complex of severe storms is expected to better organize in the northern Plains this morning before rolling east towards the Region. With daytime heating and incredible amounts of instability heading northward into the Great Lakes, this complex of storms will likely be long-lived as it rolls along the “instability gradient” we talked about on last night’s Region Weather LIVE broadcast (Re-watch HERE if needed). Damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes are all possible wherever this complex decides to go–which favors Wisconsin, northern Illinois, southern Michigan, and northern Indiana. Still some time to watch how it develops, but best guess for local arrival would be from lunchtime through early afternoon. Stay tuned for updates.
